Anniversary dinner

My husband took me there for our 2nd anniversary. Service was very fast, we ordered steak and a chicken & mushroom dish...and they both were great. Staff were friendly and attentive. Its not a cheap restaurant though, so expect to pay min JOD 20 per person.

There are many places in Abdoun circle that are not worth going to. This place is one you should visit. There's a few seats outside where there's a great view of what's going on in the circle. The valet parking attendant is super friendly and quick to fetch your car as you're ready to leave. The fish, burgers and steaks... More

We used to like this restaurant a few years ago, we went today for lunch and it was very bad, good wasn't fresh at all, looks as if it was cooked yesterday and reheated... Salad veggies were not fresh, taste was awful, and way overpriced if you compare to quality...we are not going to go there again!!!
